DEF LEPPARD: VH1 Program Focusing On Making Of 'Pyromania' To Air This Weekend

VH1 Classic's "Ultimate Albums: Def Leppard "Pyromania" is scheduled to premiere Saturday, February 19 at 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. The half-hour program will delve into the making of "Pyromania", from how it changed the landscape of music in the '80s to how it put DEF LEPPARD on the map.

DEF LEPPARD's breakthrough 1983 album, "Pyromania", was certified at the RIAA's (Recording Industry Association of America) diamond level (10 million copies shipped) last July. Produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange, "Pyromania" benefited greatly from MTV's relentless airing of the album's first two singles, "Photograph" and "Rock of Ages". The U.K. group continues to record and tour, their most recent collection of new music being 2002's "X" (Universal).
